An event on the Parthenon Marbles was held Sunday at the Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles.

The event included a photography exhibition titled “Marbles” by photographer A. Papapostolou, addresses by Dr. Matthew Dillon, professor of Classics and Archaeology at LMU on the Parthenon and journalst Christos Constantopoulos on Greece’s campaign for the return of the Marbles from Britain, the restoration works ongoing on the Acropolis site and the new Acropolis Museum, and the screening of a 35-minute documentary “The Pheidias Legacy” which was a co-production with ANA-MPA.

On Friday, the Hellenic Cultural Centre will organise a second screening of the documentary, with an address by Constantopoulos, in the Cypress Room at St. Spyridon Church in San Diego.
